Well, to find out what stuff is passed on I use sometimes the next line, which you can add
in the smb.conf to your [HP-5N-Market] entry:

  root preexec = echo "U-%U G-%G M-%M I-%I m-%m a-%a t-%T h-%H p-%P s-%S u-%u g-%g" >>

actually you can just also run a script in which you just grab whatever you like to know
is going on, like 'id', 'pwd' etc.

  root preexec = /usr/local/samba/scripts/preinfo.ksh [ <parameters> ]
        (if you like, of course you can add parameters, like  %U  %I  %m)

I hope this is what you mean?

Yah, that's a bit of a problem nowadays- not just in this group. I reckon there are to
many questions and to little answers;-)
